The Intercessor (June contest)

God bless him,
he, who was born
from the womb of the darkness
to enlighten a world;

a distinguished human,
a teacher not a preacher,
a compassionate leader,
that will have no successor,

the slave and messenger of God,
peace be upon him,

Mohammad.

Free verse. After all our work together piecing together metric constructions, you wow me with free verse.
It is strong.

It pleases me to know that you like my little free verse piece.
Hope you give it a shot too. It's not that hard for a genius like you.

Beautiful quote!

This is a beautiful and inspired piece. It's as if you are writing the ultimate introduction. All Good Here.

for your generous comment. You are absolutely right about this being inspired. It is exactly how I heard it in my head while sleeping and directly typed into to the text box.
Thank you. Looking forward to reading your works.

The subject I find objectionable as it appears to be someone of one belief putting their faith ahead of all others. On the other hand it is a well written poem using the show don't tell principle throughout.

didn't expect anyone to comment on my piece and I doubt this entrant to win the contest. However, I think the fact that Mohammad (pbuh) as a "historical figure" is not negotiable.
Saying so, I still appreciate your honest comment Keith.

I was heavy handed in a totally uncalled for way. Let us all have our own beliefs (and unbelief, in the case of atheists) and be willing to show not merely tolerance but support for the other person's right to think differently.

is undoubtedly a historical figure that changed everything about how the world views itself. Unlike Jesus (of which there is no concrete proof of his existence), Mohammad was a real figure in history with undeniable proof of his presence. It is not about faith at all. It is history.
Enter it Rula.

but evidence in the form of a mention by Josephus and some gospel fragments that go right back to a time when many reading them would be eye witnesses of the events, ie, within forty years of his death.

Sir, I had entered it anyway and I am really thankful. In another note I have to say that as mentioned in the holy Qura'an Jesus (Isa) is another great prophet. As a muslim I believe that he is the "word of Allah" and a prophet who is sent to his people with the holy Bible.

I really wanted to leave off after my last comment but,
"a prophet who is sent to his people with the holy Bible"
and yet you dismiss that very Bible with the simple claim that somewhere in undocumented history it was distorted somehow. It is the same with Mormons, they don't actually dismiss the Bible but refer only to The Book of Mormon in all their discussions.

Keith Logan

doubt this debate to be of any use at the end. However, as a muslim I am ordered to believe in Isa as well as the Bible that is sent from Allah as well as All the other holy books sent from Allah
And it is all written in the Quran Kaith. It is not my claim.

The language is beautiful. I wish I could read it in Arabic.
I don't know what Jesus is. I talk to the Essence (which is what I call Him in my epic). Jehovah, Allah, these are names for a sense of power. Power that is granted to me.
Tell me more about Jesus. Have you read the New testament?
What does it mean to Islam?

because it's (distorted) not the original book that is sent by Allah (God) to Isa.
As mentioned in the holy Qura'an, Isa is a prophet and he is a miracle because he (the son of Maryam) was not the result of any kind of marriage. He has no father. Allah privileged Maryam with this carriage. He (Allah) wanted this pregnancy to be and so it become. But unlike what Christians believe that Isa ( Jesus) is a god himself, Islam believes in him as one of the many prophets.
Hope this gives a good idea and urges for more research for more specific details sir.

How could Allah not protect his revelations from distortion?

through the Quran but the amount of repetition always referring back to Abraham was enough to put me off finishing it. I kept thinking I have read all this before, what's the point. By the way, that is also true of The Book of Mormon but I started that first and used up all my willingness to read through repetition for a second time. At least with the Iliad the count of all the boatloads of Greeks lasted only about fifty pages.
PS: I should mention that all of this reading, Quran, Book of Mormon, Bible, works of Von Daniken and The Spaceships of Ezekiel – by Josef F. Blumrich took place long before I became a Christian.

controversial topic
none the less I told you
I am always second
You must win
Have Faith in Allah!

Competitions I generally avoid
as at times
see what you have to go through
''read all above ''.

Racialism must be left out
we must all be on an
EQUAL footing
Rula.

I can't stand along side with you
but surely may be this time
seconded
behind you.

Thank you!
I always have faith in Allah.
Your words and wisdom shall always ring true.
Thank you.
